With extreme cyber-attacks becoming increasingly prevalent, companies face a growing challenge to ensure their business-critical data is protected and available. But on average, small and mid-sized businesses currently have four separate data protection products¹ - a costly, time-consuming, risky, and untenable practice.
Given the estimate that by 2020, 27% of all business data will reside in the cloud¹, with the remainder split across physical and virtual environments, switching to a unified backup solution is the obvious choice.
And with Veritas Backup Exec™ there’s never been a better time to do that!
Backup Exec™ allows you to manage your entire backup and recovery infrastructure simultaneously from a single console. 2.2m organizations in 200 countries already rely on Backup Exec™. You can join them – and pay less in the process!
